Collect of the Day

Your love, O God, is boundless.

We who were strangers

have been made your children;

we who were defenceless

have been brought into your household.

Keep us mindful of your mercy,

so that we may love you with our whole heart

and love our neighbour as ourselves.

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God for ever and ever.  Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
We are to love God with our whole being, and love others as much as we love ourselves.

Leader: In love and trust, let us pray to our God. St Mark’s, Pakenham, St John’s, Antrim, St George’s, Waba, The Rev. Peggy Kuzmicz, Priest in Charge.

We pray for John, our bishop, Arran, our priest, and Allan our honorary assistant. We pray for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: Holy God, give us courage to tell your truth without fear, and to work for your kingdom with joy. Thank you for the support and love of other Christians, and the richness of our varied traditions. May we focus our attention on you with such love that all unnecessary divisions between us crumble. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we pray for our law makers and keepers; may our laws work to uphold what is just and true. We pray that we may live in Godly peace and goodwill through choice, rather than through fear of punishment; through the desire to live well, rather than avoiding detection. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, in all our day-to-day living may we reject deceit and flattery, so that our motives and behaviour are honest, and our love for one another clear as the day. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we pray for all law breakers and their families; for those in prison and those returning to the community. We pray for those imprisoned by guilt and shame, or trapped by physical frailty, illness or paralysis. We pray for those whose lives are tragically disrupted by war and famine, poverty and disease. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we remember those who, dying in faith, rejoice to see you as you are. We thank you for their example and commend them to your peace for ever. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: You are the Lord:

People: there is no other.

Leader: Holy God, we give you thanks for the love poured out to us each moment of each day, and ask of you the grace to live our gratitude and give freely of what we have freely received.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers for the sake of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,

our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

The Communion


Anthem: O Jesus, Every Moment by Philip Stopford

O Jesus, every moment be in my heart and mind;

O Jesus, stir my heart with sorrow for my sins;

O Jesus, fill my heart with never failing love;

O Jesus, sweet Master, never part from me.


O Jesus is my King, my friend, and my love;

O Jesus is my shelter from sinning and from death;

O Jesus, my gladness, my mirror all my days;

O Jesus, my dearest Lord, never part from me.


O Jesus, be for ever in my heart and in my mouth;

O Jesus, be for ever in my thought and prayer;

O Jesus, be for ever in my quiet mind;

O Jesus, my sweet Lord, do not leave me alone.


Prayer after Communion


We give you thanks, almighty God,
that you have refreshed us
through the healing power of this gift of life.
In your mercy, strengthen us through this gift,
in faith toward you and in fervent love toward one another;
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
